ESPN’s Colin Cowherd Fires Shots; Dan Patrick Responds [Video]
With news breaking Tuesday that Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was checking into rehab, Cowherd went on a bit of a rant on "The Herd with Colin Cowherd," saying that ESPN's Skip Bayless broke the news a while ago that Manziel was having issues with alcohol.
No one believed Bayless at the time, but he has since been proven right.
During his rant, Cowherd talked about how hard he works, ranking himself up there with Jim Rome and Bayless as well. He then took a shot at former ESPN personality Dan Patrick, who hosts his own very successful show on DirecTV, is syndicated on radio stations across the country and does some work for the NFL Network.
Cowherd said that Patrick "needs 35 producers to fill a segment."
Tuesday on "The Dan Patrick Show," Patrick surprisingly responded to Cowherd's comments. He said that he has two producers, who he credits on the air all the time, unlike Cowherd. He then went on to tell Cowherd to leave ESPN and see how easy things are, like he did years ago. He also subtly fired off his resume, which was the nail in the coffin.
So, essentially, Patrick's response was "Scoreboard." Advantage: Patrick.
